Friends University will present its fall ballet featuring the crowd pleasing “The Firebird” and a new ballet “Colours” at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 8 and 9 and at 2 p.m. Oct. 10 in Sebits Auditorium in the Riney Fine Arts Center.
“The Firebird” was first performed in 1911 and is a story-ballet based on a Russian fairy tale. Set to Stravinsky’s brilliant score and with new choreography by director Stan K. Rogers, the stage will come to life with a magical bird, a prince, princesses and an evil witch. Beautiful costumes designed by Charla B. Sanderson, scenic design by J. Branson and lighting by Sean Roberson will amplify the beauty of this production.
“Colours” is based on the three primary colors with choreography by Stan K. Rogers. Music for color red will be Michael Torke, music for the color blue is Faure and yellow is Hayden.
Tickets are $15 for adults and $12 for senior citizens and students. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are available in the Fine Arts Office or by calling 316-295-5677.
